Will Rogers Trail Description

Will rogers Trail is an urban, non-motorized, multi-use pathway in Oklahoma City. The trail, together with the West River Trail and the planned Lake Draper Trail, are part of a wider initiative to improve the quality of life for residents of the city. The trail closes the 8-mile gap between the Bert Cooper Trails at Lake Hefner and the Oklahoma River Trails, allowing for one safe, continuous ride.

Beginning at the northern endpoint off of the Lake Hefner trails on Meridian Ave. use the crosswalk across the NW Expressway and continue heading south on Meridian Avenue, then pivot east when you come to NW 63rd St.  Head southeast alongside the NW Expressway, then south again on Portland Ave. You will find this sequence of south-east repeats as you travel, but it’s not jarring. You will pass Will Rogers Park at N Grand Ave., pass Linwood Elementary on 16th Street, and skirt State Fair Park about 2 miles north of the trail’s endpoint. The trail intersects with the Oklahoma River Trails east of May Ave.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the existing facilities of the Bert Cooper and Oklahoma River trails. If starting from the north, park at the lot on Meridian Ave. & the NW Expressway. If kicking off your journey from the Oklahoma River Trails, you can park on the lot along May Ave. on the north bank of the river. There is also a parking at Will Rogers Park off Portland Ave. The park is home to colorful gardens and arboretums, for those interested in a floricultural diversion.

Will Rogers Trail Reviews


Nice trail that connects to Oklahoma River Trail

Loud and dirty

I'd also add that this trail, while essential and much appreciated, does parallel I-44, a busy interstate highway, for much of its length. So the experience is very loud and not the greatest in terms of air quality.

Will Rogers Trail

This is a nice trail that connects the Oklahoma Rivers Trails with the Bert Cooper Trails at Lake Hefner. The only downside is the trail crosses major thoroughfares at Reno Ave., NW 23, NW 50, NW 63 and the Northwest Expressway, all of which result in long delays for the light to change. In addition, it crosses NW 16 at an intersection where eastbound and westbound traffic doesn’t have to stop or even slow down.
